  1. Easiest way to block Windows Updates


    Hi all,

    I need three days of my life to setup a new computer with Win 10 Pro AU and now it's pretty fine (or almost...).

    Said that, I am really afraid that some "forced" update will destroy my spare time again so I want to AVOID Windows Update to update my computer.

    I know I can do an image but now the size of the disk is so large that I don't think I will do a clone.

    Said that, I read many ways to block updates, but I want to ask you something and I hope you will answer me in the way I hope:

    IF I WANT TO STOP Windows update, I can simply set my WI-FI connection to "Consumption Connection" (sorry for my english)?

    If it works, and Windows sees that WI-FI as consumption, it will never update itself, and to my eyes it's the best, easiest and not intrusive way to prevent updates... I AM RIGHT???

    :)

    easiest way of copying contacts

    Copy the contacts you are missing from the old MS account to the new one on a PC, then they will automatically sync to the phone.

  5. Sure, but I'm looking for the "cleanest" method, disable a system service is good but I am afraid that someday Windows alone will restore it.

    Please, tell me the last thing, I am able to set as "Metered connection" a WIFI network but If I want to set in that way a LAN connection (cable ethernet connection) how I reach that? I need that for the Virtualboxes Win 10 that use a "virtual" ethernet internet.

  7. I think the tutorial is obsolete about the driver because the AU change the things... Could you confirm?

    Easiest way to block Windows Updates

    Even if you set your connection to Metered, eventually Windows Updates will come through. The only sure way to stop them is disable Windows Update in Services.
